Kids Supporting Kids – A Fun Approach to Heart Health!
Since it’s inception in 2006, The Maritime Heart Center’s H2K program has become one of the most innovative heart disease prevention initiatives in the province. The goal of H2K is simple: in a time where childhood obesity and sedentary lifestyles are reaching epidemic proportions, we want to give kids and their caregivers the tools to lead heart healthier lifestyles! This doesn’t just mean encouraging kids to get active – it means empowering them to make smarter decisions about exercise and nutrition and educating about risk factors and the benefits of long-term health.
Our program is already making waves in schools across HRM… and it is our long-term goal to develop H2K into an initiative that is accessible to all kids.
